What fees do you charge?
There is no fee to list a business on CapitalPitch.
CapitalPitch charges businesses 3% of the capital raised on successful raises. We charge a marketing fee of 4% which is paid to whomever introduces the capital. So if the startup finds their own investor they only pay 3%. However, if another party such as a corporate advisor,angel association or even another investor introduces the investor then the business pays CapitalPitch 3% and the introducer receives 4%. If CapitalPitch sources the capital we receive 7% (3% + 4%).
Investors are not charged anything.
Unsuccessful raises are not charged.
Does CapitalPitch invest in the startups as well?
Yes. We invest in every startup that successfully raises. We invest via the CapitalPitch Ventures Fund as the co-lead. We currently invest $50,000 or 10% of the raise, which ever is lower.
We believe that our 6 step process produces superior startups and we want to invest alongside other investors. This ensures that we are 100% aligned with investors as our returns are dependent on the successful future of each startup.

Why do you have a 6 step process?
We have designed the 6 step process to efficiently and effectively curate a startup from the moment they are thinking of raising capital right through to closing their round. The 6 steps entail a complete start-to-finish capital raising process.
Startups all too often are simply not investor-ready and investors are inundated with deals and the vast majority are subpar. The average VC will only invest in 0.5% of the deals they see and angels around 2.5%. Startups need to stand out and present themselves properly. Investors want to see better deal flow. We created the 6 step process to solve these problems.
